XJ DRIVING DYNAMICS
Exceptional engines, a lightning fast transmission and a range of advanced driving technologies.
POWERFUL, RESPONSIVE, SMART
The XJ offers a choice of exceptional engines built to satisfy different driving styles and requirements, but always to ensure outstanding performance and handling.
3.0L V6 340 HP SUPERCHARGED
The 3.0L V6 340 hp Supercharged engine provides high performance with an immediate response even at low engine speeds. With 332 lb-ft of torque, it can accelerate the XJ from rest to 60 mph in as fast as 5.7 seconds (6.1 seconds with AWD).3 Available on the XJ R-Sport XJ R-Sport AWD, XJL Portfolio and XJL Portfolio AWD.
5.0L V8 470 HP SUPERCHARGED
On the XJ and XJL Supercharged, the 5.0L V8 470 hp Supercharged engine provides exceptional levels of power at all engine speeds, outstanding mid-range acceleration and 0-60 mph acceleration of just 4.9 seconds.3
5.0L V8 550 HP SUPERCHARGED
The XJR delivers awesome performance produced by its exclusive 5.0L V8 550 hp Supercharged engine, tuned and calibrated to produce a top speed of up to 174 mph.3 This is a premium luxury sedan that accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.3
The beauty of the XJ is more than skin deep. Its aluminum monocoque construction is strong yet light, with near perfect front-to-rear weight distribution. Its outstanding rigidity provides confident, precise handling, and is designed to absorb the impact of poor road surfaces in its stride.
This advanced body structure also helps the XJ achieve better fuel economy than it would with a heavier steel structure. That's not all – up to 50 percent of the aluminum used in the XJ is from recycled sources.
Adaptive Dynamics analyzes vehicle speed, steering and body movements of the XJ up to 500 times a second, and then continuously modifies suspension damping rates for increased stability and comfort, whether cornering, negotiating potholes or accelerating on the highway.4
JAGUARDRIVE SELECTOR™ AND JAGUARDRIVE CONTROL™
The 8-speed transmission in the XJ is controlled by the beautifully designed JaguarDrive Selector™, which rises into your hand once the Start/Stop button is pressed. Simply rotate the selector to move from Park to Reverse or Drive. JaguarDrive Control™ offers specific settings for the drivetrain: Dynamic Mode, which modifies transmission shift points while illuminating the Virtual Instruments in red, or Winter Mode, providing more progressive throttle control for slippery conditions.4
The Active Differential in the XJ/XJL Supercharged and XJR detects wheel spin and varies the torque delivery to each rear wheel, enhancing both traction and cornering agility.4
JAGUAR INSTINCTIVE ALL WHEEL DRIVE™
This advanced all-wheel-drive system employs active power-transfer technology to continuously monitor road conditions and optimize traction and handling balance.4 Available on V6 Supercharged engines.
ALL-SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL
All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) can provide assistance in slippery conditions; whether helping to navigate a snowy driveway or park on a slippery incline.4 This low speed cruise control operates between 2 and 18mph, allowing you to concentrate more on steering.
